Manchester United

To watch his horse Spirit Dancer compete in the Bahrain International Trophy, Sir Alex Ferguson is traveling to Bahrain.

Most people agree that Sir Alex Ferguson is the best football manager in history.

His tenure at Manchester United, during which he oversaw an era of total domestic domination at Old Trafford, will go down in history as one of the greatest managerial performances ever.

The Scot has had time to devote himself to his pastimes after leaving management a little over ten years ago, taking a break from the sport he loved so much.

Ferguson has always had a passion for horse racing, and he has continued to be involved in the sport even after quitting his day job.

So much so that, according to The Mirror, Sir Alex plans to fly to Bahrain to watch his horse compete in a race with a $1 million prize for the winner.

His horse Spirit Dancer is entered in the richest Group 2 race ever, which will take place at Sakhir Racecourse.

Spirit Dancer, another Ferguson-bred son of famous sire Frankel, is winning three times this summer, his best victory coming in the Group 3 Strensall Stakes at York in August. Spirit Dancer is in fantastic form.

After achieving all possible success in his tenure as a football manager, it would come as no surprise if Sir Alex’s horse returned from Bahrain with a triumph.

This month’s celebration of Fergie’s 37th anniversary as United’s manager served as a sobering reminder to all United employees of the high expectations placed on both players and staff.

Erik ten Hag is United’s fifth permanent manager in 10 years since Ferguson left the team in the summer of 2013. The team has struggled to maintain stability since then.

The Scottish player gracefully exited the Premier League title game in 2013 with a canter, and he will be hoping Sprit Dancer can do the same in Bahrain.

Sadly, Manchester City has taken over as the dominant team in the division, and United hasn’t even gone close to winning a league title since Fergie’s retirement.

In a recent interview, the great manager, nevertheless, publicly backed the under-pressure Dutchman and expressed his belief that United are headed in the right direction under their new coach, Erik ten Hag.

When club football resumes at the end of November following the most recent international break, Ten Hag will be looking for a continuation of the respectable results obtained in the league in recent weeks.
